Writer, editor, landlady, neighborhood nerd.


Vikki has worked as a copyeditor, resume writer, proofreader, and arts writer. She has written for BUST, The Boston Globe, Zagat, The Providence Phoenix, and other local/arts publications. Her work appeared in The BUST DIY Guide to Life. She has an M.A. in Publishing and Writing from Emerson College. Vikki has worked in the audiobook field for more than ten years. She now works as an acquisitions editor for Blackstone Publishing.

Vikki's debut memoir Tenemental: Adventures of a Reluctant Landlady (Feminist Press, 2018) is a testy love letter to her house, her tenants, and her Providence, Rhode Island neighborhood. Kirkus Reviews called it "refreshingly original reading," and O, The Oprah Magazine picked it as a Top Book of Summer in the July 2018 issue.

Here's a profile of Vikki and Tenemental in the Providence Journal, and another in Providence Monthly. And here's Vikki's list of her favorite memoirs by women with unconventional jobs for Electric Literature.
